Ice Cream

Nothing like a trip to the Blue Bell Ice Cream Factory!

At the end of the tour - free ice cream! Ronnie and Ben got chocolate chip cookie dough. Lila got mint chocolate chip, and I got pistachio almond.

If there is anything my children like, it's projects. Whether it's art, legos, crocheting, we stock up for vacation time. Here is a crystal garden they grew yesterday.

Granny bought this supercool robot building project for Ben (and Edwin).

I wonder what projects will be in store tomorrow!

Over 2 weeks later, all I've got to say is, "birds."

They are Texas birds.

Happy Hanukah to me!

For YEARS, like, since 6th grade, I've always wanted a dress form. I used to sew my clothes, so thought it would be helpful. Then I just thought they were cool. I tried to register for one when we got married, and Edwin said no way, so I had to settle for a collection of mini mannequins, dress forms, and jewelry holders.

FINALLY, Edwin succumbed, and got me this AWESOME vintage style dress form for Hanukah.
(it didn't hurt that I sent him the link)

I'm going to have fun with this!

The Universal Language

I love you! In sign language - even the kids knew this one. Well, they knew it was either, "I love you," or "Hook 'em horns!"

What a great time of year to remind your friends and family how much you love them. Find it in my etsy shop.

Hanukah Harry Has Hit

Every year about 1 day before Hanukah, I remember I am supposed to purchase and wrap about 30 presents. That's a job - 3 kids and eight nights, and I guess a couple for Edwin. . . and especially since these children seriously don't need any more junk. Anyway, here is what I came up with so far.

I don't quite have it done. The count from today's expo was just 3 little things for Edwin, and about 5 for each kid. Don't mind the boxes of exploding gun powder - I had to let Edwin pick something out for them.

Now, how in the WORLD does one wrap a beanbag??
